The Nationals announced on Friday that Dusty Baker will not be back as a manager in Washington.
The Nationals let Baker go after he lead them to the playoffs in his two years at manager but failed to win a series back to back years.
He finished with a .593 winning percentage going 192-132. His winning percentage was the best by a Washington Manager in Nationals history.
The team wrote in a letter saying “He is one of the true gentlemen in our sport, and we thank him for the successes that we enjoyed together over the last two years. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”
Bakers contract was ending at the end of the season along with some of the other coaches on the Nationals roster.
The Kansas City Chiefs started off the 2017 season with a 5-0 record, since then they’ve lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost their second game last night to the Raiders.
Both Derek Carr and Alex Smith had great games after they both threw 3 touchdowns each and 0 interceptions. Wider Reciever, Amari Cooper was unstoppable last night and that was a big game changer as he caught 11 passes for 210 yards along with two touchdowns.
It was a close most of the game but coming into the 4th quarter, The Chiefs had a two-score lead at 30-21. Toward the beginning of the fourth, the Raiders added another field goal to make the score 24-30 with the Chief winning.
It came down to the last few seconds… The Raiders were down 30-24 but had the ball at the two-yard line. Derek Carr threw a quick two-yard pass to Michael Crabtree for a touchdown to make the score 30-30 as time expired. The Raiders kicker finished the game by making the PAT. 31-30 Raiders.
The Detroit Rapper, Eminem, was at the Detroit Pistons Little Ceasers Arena Debut after the Pistons spent almost 40 years playing in the suburbs of Detroit.
Eminem was given the mic, for a pre-game speech and had a chance to say something to all the Pistons Fans. Eminem Hyped up Detroit by saying “Detroit, welcome them back for the first time in over 40 years to our city, to my city, to your city! Make some noise for the Detroit Pistons. Let’s go!”
Big Sean was also at the game, who got to hang out with Eminem where they got a chance to get their picture taken:
Eminem came in repping his Pistons gear with a blue Pistons shirt in the Piston win on Wednesday night. Check out the video of Eminem giving his speech at LCA:
The Eagles have been one of the top teams the past few weeks and after beating the Panthers, they look like the top spot to me.
2- Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs took their first loss against the Steelers this past week but I believe they will bounce back this week.
3- Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have been a little inconsistent this year, but after they beat the number one offense in the NFL, I think they deserve to be at least a top 5 team.
4- Carolina Panthers
The Panthers stayed close to the Eagles but couldn’t beat them as Cam Newton Struggled with his passing.
This may be a little high for Minnesota, but although they beat the Packers without Rodgers, the Vikings still played pretty well.
6- New England Patriots
The Patriots beat the Jets, who have been better than everybody thought, in a very close game. Tom Brady lead them to a 24-17 win to make them 4-2.
7- Los Angeles Rams
The Rams may be serious in their new city, as they have gone 4-2. At first, I doubted them but now I have some confidence them.
8-Green Bay Packers
The Packers chances to make the playoffs have gone down as they lost starting QB, Aaron Rodgers due to an Injury. The Packers are now in the hands of Brett Hundley.
9- Seattle Seahawks
10-New Orleans Saints
The Saints beat my Lions in a pretty high scoring game. They Scored 52 points but almost allowed a Lions comeback. I’m not sure if the Saints are actually “good” yet but well see after this weeks game.
A day after the Vikings beat the Packers, the Vikings have announced starting quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater is eligible to start practicing in practice. Bridgewater has been injured for quite a while now, with a seriously injured knee that happened over a year ago.
In 2015, when Bridgewater started all 16 games, he lead the Vikings to an 11-5 and season and brought them to the playoffs. Since then, they haven’t been as successful.
Teddy Bridgewater tweeted “thank you” after being cleared to partcipate.
The Packers announced Aaron Rodgers could possibly be out the rest of the season
In Sunday’s game against the Vikings, Packers QB, Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken right collarbone.
Rodgers was replaced by Brett Hundley, who couldn’t finish the game, as the Packers lost 23-10.
The Packers are one of the best teams in the NFL and coming to week 6 the packers were in my top 5 in NFL power rankings. The Packers will have to rely more on running and hand the ball more to running back, Ty Montgomery who hasn’t also dealt with injuries throughout this season. Aaron Rodgers has been pretty durable throughout his career, with Only one major injury in 2013 when he also had a collarbone injury.
Can The Packer Still Win The NFC North Without Rodgers?
Yes… but with the NFC North being kind of a tough division, they may want to consider signing another quarterback, as they have much of a less chance of winning the division without their star QB.
The Packers could sign Colin Kaepernick to fill their QB needs for the rest of the season but they may not due to the anthem protest. Comment Below about what you think the Packers should do!
